‘I do need to thank Trump’ – Isla Fisher wins AACTA ‘Trailblazer Award’ and here are the speech highlights


I really have to thank my fellow actors, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Margot Robbie and Toni Collette – all of whom were no doubt offered this award first and they couldn’t make it here tonight so, yay!

From a young age my parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in this life, that your word is your bond, you say what you want to do and you keep your promises, that you treat people with respect.

I figured if Melania Trump can use them and have success, I should try.

I do need to thank Trump. I don’t think I’d be here if it weren’t for him showing the world that unqualified orange people can win things.

There’s no question that this is the pinnacle of my career so far and a complete honour to come home and be supported. It feels incredible.

I did not see the sausages.

When I first came to Hollywood, I really wanted to get into the world of comedy but all of the roles I read, the women (characters) would roll their eyes and the men would do funny, crazy stuff.

I waited and waited and I was fortunate to be cast in Wedding Crashers – playing a bipolar nymphomaniac. But yes, women are funny. People want to go see women stories.
